how do you get a rabbit to stop eating cords?

we have our first rabbit and she keeps getting behind the tv chewing on the cords to everything. we have no way to block off the cords because of the table the tv is on. but i hate not being able to let her out of her cage because of it. It's just not right to keep her caged all the time.

  • I have a house rabbit who has run of one room all the time and the whole house when I can keep an eye on her. The easiest thing to do with cord is get pvc pipe and run the cord thru it. If it is shorter lengths of cord they make cord covers. You can get them at electronic stores or home depot/lowes.

  • We have the problem with our cat, it's why we named her Chewie. LOL! I bought those cord cover things from the electronics store, and I also staple sheets of paper over other cords. I double fold a sheet of paper long ways, fold it again and place the fold along the cord, enclosing the cord, and then staple the paper closed, being careful to not staple the cord. It only takes 2-4 staples per paper.

  • shoot it? JK...
    I would say, build a pen for it and leave it outside!

  • You can try getting some metal wire & Spiraling down & around the chords.

  • Make a play area for her; I had a friend who had a rabbit and it always went behind the stereo and tv. So I gave her my daughter's old play pen.
